The legislative session starts this Monday and I am very anxious about the bills that our democrat controlled legislature will introduce. I expect to see more money being wasted on education, an expansion of the voting regulations, an increase in taxes, attacks on the 2nd Amendment, and a focus on social justice issues. What I would like to see, but have no hope for, is a repeal of AB 321 which allows for ballot harvesting among other things. I would also hope for Constitutional Carry for Nevada but I don’t expect to see that. The point here is that we must all be involved if we want to see change. It is not at all difficult to email your representatives when there is a bad bill being brought forward. You may also attend hearings via Zoom or even call in and voice your concerns. Janine Hanson with Eagle Forum is conducting Citizen Lobbyist training for persons that want to take a more active role in what comes from our lawmakers (see opportunities below and read more here). I strongly encourage all of you that desire to influence the outcome of this legislative session to get involved at some level. After all, our legislators are supposed to represent us. But they cannot do that if they do not know what is important to us. By communicating our concerns, we expose those elected officials that listen to the people and those that ignore the people and push their own agenda. Stay tuned for ways to participate in the State of Nevada 82nd Legislative Session.
Paul White is still pursuing the improvement of the Washoe County School District (WCSD) with his activities in the Education Crusade. Some of the information he has dug up is unbelievable and shows clearly that the WCSD does not have the fundamentals of education as a priority (see contact information below and read more at https://nevadaliberty.org/). Another organization having multiple goals and headed up by Nichelle Hull, is Wake Up Washoe County https://wakeupwashoecounty.org/ . Their focus is not only education, it includes other issues that affect our community. One such issue is Drag Queen Story Hour in our taxpayer funded libraries. The next Library Board of Trustees meeting will be held February 15h at the Sierra View Library at 4pm. This is still an ongoing struggle to remove this program from being presented since there is ample evidence that shows how this program is harmful to children. There is only one single email address firstname.lastname@example.org, for ALL of the Trustees to receive your comments, a very odd sitution to say the least. Finally, “Save The Date” for February 28th. There will more more information coming regarding this date.
I want you all to know how much I appreciate what every individual stepping up to make our community a better place to live and raise a family means to me. I am proud call you all Patriots!
We did request (by email to the Library Director) that Drag Queen Story Hour be placed on the Agenda for discussion and resolution, yet we did not meet the time requirements for it to be agendized this meeting.
Please note that meetings for the Library Board were cancelled for the months of June, July and August of 2022. This is in the Agenda Packet. It is somewhat disconcerting that with the record attendance at the September meeting and the concerns regarding Drag Queen Story Hour that the item was not placed on the Agenda without a public request.
From the Agenda Packet:
“Library Director Update 10/10/22 Library Board of Trustees Update Our next LBOT meeting will be on October 19 at the Sparks Library. You will notice minor edits to the bylaws and new agenda format emphasizing patron conduct. We had many public comments at the September meeting protesting the Drag Queen Storytime. I am unsure why they chose September to protest when we have our Pride events in June and July. I know libraries were generally under attack during Banned Books Week (the same week as our board meeting), which forced libraries to close due to bomb threats. I have met with our county counsel and board chair about conduct during the meeting and how to handle it. I am confident that we will be able to maintain order in future meetings.”
I am excited about our upcoming meeting this Thursday! Eddie Lorton, the only Conservative Candidate running for Mayor of Reno (https://eddielorton.com/), will be speaking about the past, present and future (I am sure) dysfunction of the Reno City Council. I can assure you that you have no idea how bad it is. I have also invited other candidates to come and introduce themselves to you. As this is an election year, I think it is imperative that you get to meet as many of the candidates as possible so you can make informed decisions at the ballot box. I know, I know. I meant Post Office box! Joel Beck (http://beckforcongress.us/) will be introducing himself as Candidate for Congressional District 2, a seat currently held by Mark Amodei. There will also be a speaker informing us about the dysfunction of our Registrar of Voter office. We all know about how the DMV is changing registrations without the voter being aware of it. But wait! There’s more! I hope to see you all there.
Here we are again struggling to have our voices heard by our elected officials. Our County Commissioners are still backpedaling on actions to ensure our votes count. We need to show up again this Tuesday, March 8th, to the Commissioner’s meeting and let them know how we feel. Did anyone notice that the 3/15 Commissioner Meeting has been cancelled already? That means that the proposal to fix our elections will not be heard this month. One can only wonder why…….
One of our guest speakers at our Nevada Patriot Meeting this Thursday is Robert Beadles. Robert Beadles has been leading the effort to true our election here in Washoe County. It will be quite eye opening to hear what he has for us his presentation. See below for more information.
According to the State of the Union address, everything is just great in the good old U.S.A. but we Patriots know better. We are almost to the point you have to take out a loan to fill your tank at the gas pump! This is not a “supply chain” issue. This is a failure of policy. Just a few years ago we were energy independent and a major exporter of oil. What happened? All I can say is, Let’s Go Brandon!
While I’m thinking about it, what happened to the Covid hysteria? I realize there is a free hat in every roll of aluminum foil, and I am not a conspiracy theorist, but for the last two years that is all we heard about. Our Governor has not lifted the Emergency Declaration so at any time we can be locked down and masked up again. Remember folks, those measures were just for your safety. Is it not interesting how people in power think it is okay to strip you of your liberties for your own safety? Hmmmmm………
Call to Action
February 22, 2022 at 10:00am
Washoe County Board of Commissioners
1001 E. 9th Street
My Fellow Patriots,
NOW is the time for action. Attend, email, call! DO what you can. You all did it once before on the 8th of February, 2022.
Hundreds of citizens attended the Washoe County Board of Commissioners Meeting on February 8th demanding our elections to be fair, honest and transparent.
Attending the Meeting
Commissioner Jeanne Herman (District 5) successfully placed on the 2/22/22 Board of County Commissioners Agenda a resolution with steps (allowable by law) to strengthen election processes and security of the 2022 election. Please see the attached Agenda and Resolution documents for your review & use in next week’s meeting. The Resolution is Item #14.
You may give general public comment at the beginning and at the end of the meeting (Items #3 and 18, respectively). You may also give Election Integrity related comment during Item #14. You may also speak on any other item on the agenda about which you are concerned, but it must be related to that item alone.
Washoe County Registrar Deanna Spikula will be giving a presentation on “Election Administration for the 2022 Election” (Item #5). This is a discussion item only, likely without public comment, (that may change). Do use that presentation to augment any comments you may want to make on Item #14.
Comments are limited to 3 minutes. Please identify yourself for the record and consider stating, “Please ensure my comments are entered into the public record, per NRS 241.035.” This NRS is the Open Meeting Law statute and requires that the clerk take accurate minutes of your comments made during the meeting.
Please keep in mind this is a business meeting. The guidelines for conduct of the meeting are detailed on the first page of the attached agenda. Please review & be familiar with the rules to ensure we have engaging, but PEACEFUL and PATRIOTIC citizen participation.
Since the resolution and agenda have been publicized, there have been articles and social media posts condemning the resolution, inaccurately claiming it’s an effort to unlawfully suppress the vote and intimidate voters. Nothing could be further from the truth. The proposals are intended to LAWFULLY tighten provisions of the election process in order to ensure election integrity. It is disappointing to receive such criticism, but not unexpected. Our job as citizens will be to make solid, respectful points in support of this resolution. We may suffer attacks from slings and arrows of opposing forces, but we know we stand on firm Constitutional principles in demanding our elected representatives redress our grievances as provided in the First Amendment of our Bill of Rights.
